In the 23rd minute Pete Black hit the ball into the D for Jack Dyer to deflect home and put Harris two in front and then four minutes later Pete got his own second with an angled shot low into the far corner of the goal. Monarchs then fought back to make it 5-3 a minute later from a short corner. Two minutes from time Greg grabbed his second goal when he dribbled past two defenders before shooting past the keeper. In the last minute a long ball down the right from Finlay Wright found Greg who beat the last defender and shot against the keeper and the rebound hit a Monarchs defender to give Harris a short corner which they again failed to convert.
